Jeannie Motherwell's work pits generation against collapse, and are as capricious as light flashing on water. They pin us with similar intensity — a moment of coming to be that will just as soon vanish.
Cate McQuaid, Boston Globe

Abstract acrylic painter Jeannie Motherwell refuses to grow cold in the artistic shadow of her father and stepmother, Robert Motherwell and Helen Frankenthaler. As a stable ecosystem quells its wrestling constituents, Motherwell's refined intuition hushes the spontaneous boundaries of dilating paint on clay board panel and canvas. Over a soberly spoken interview, the New York artist admits in her work the faint pursuit of a faded horizon: the shifting waters from the view of an old home, replaced, in time, by a windowless studio. The methodology of Motherwell's art - to draw a structure from an uncertainty - eerily echoes a ritual from her upbringing: discerning, with the right words, to the joy of her guardians, the spiritual essences behind their cascades of paint.
Brainard Carey, Praxis Center for Aesthetic Studies

"Jeannie’s paintings embody a bold re-visioning of abstract painting. The paintings seem to live in a realm between motion and stillness, micro and macro seeing at the same time. This simultaneousness makes for a vigorous dynamic of what exists as imagination and what is perceived. The work is exciting, the color palette luscious, the overall impact is breathtaking. Alchemy!"
Rose Austin, Photographer, Educator, and former director of the Massachusetts Culture Council

Jeannie Motherwell’s beautifully fluid new paintings are a startling departure from the torn edges of her previous collages, as if some angst has been resolved through harmonies of happiness, offering recognitions of wonder that only had been latent in earlier anxieties. If Rorschach discovered that even an ugly shape can become enormously appealing if the image is flopped, Motherwell, in these acrylics on clay board panel and canvas, transcends symmetry to achieve transformative mystery."
Christopher Busa, Founder/Editor, Provincetown Arts Magazine

"Jeannie Motherwell’s new paintings span the distance between far flung galaxies and the crust of the earth. Much like Gaston Bachelard’s reflections on intimacy and immensity, they speak of memories and dreams, evoking—improbably, delightfully—both the solidity of landscape and transparency of smoke."
Necee Regis, Writer/photographer

"The sensual stain of Jeannie Motherwell’s paintings evoke the change of seasons – fall color, a balance of warmth with the impending chill, slicked over a ground of winter white. Like the first frost over newly fallen leaves."
Erin Becker, Norma Jean Calderwood Director, Cambridge Art Association
